Everything I do in the program is not only contributing to NEAR's growth but also to my own development.
After a few weeks, I had the opportunity to host a meetup about NEAR and it was a full success.
I was able to develop my skills and knowledge in the space.

Want to become a Contributor?


You are interested in the technology, read about new developments in your free-time and don't shy away from learning more about the blockchain and open web space, in particular, NEAR Protocol.


As part of the Contributor Program, you will be the local representative of NEAR. You are eager to take on new challenges and get involved in event planning, management, and speaking.


Whether you're a great speaker, have a talent in blogging, lead a top technical community, are a social media superstar, a top GitHub or StackOverflow contributor or have a totally different and cool way to share your passion for our products and services, we'd love to know more!

What does a Contributor do?

We Do

  • Run meetups for developers, dApp projects, validators and a blockchain-interested audience
  • Facilitate discussions around open web use cases and sustainable business models
  • Attract community members who want to get their hands dirty and build sustainable projects


  • Run hodler meetups
  • Manage online communities for crypto traders and price pumping
  • Attract community members who are only interested in crypto for investment purposes

The goal of the Contributor Program is to empower and grow the open web ecosystem through a global network. As a Contributor, you will be able to combine your existing interests and community efforts with the NEAR ecosystem. We will discuss on a one-to-one basis the activities you can get involved with, contributing to NEAR.

Build the Future Web

We believe the web needs to change. We are fighting for an open, equitable web, when people are in control of their data. As a Contributor, you will take part in building the future of the open web alongside Near.

Exclusive Training

Part of the Contributor Program are monthly workshops by the Near team. We will help you navigate through the vast amount of information in the space by providing personalised training.

Connections & Exposure

We will showcase your efforts and put you in contact with strategic partners. The connections you make through this program will provide you with the foundation for your next career steps.


Our principle is: The more you get involved, the more resources you will be given; including, a monthly token reward, reimbursements for your events and additional efforts, and tickets to local events.
